Washington Zoo

Hi everyone! It feel so great to be scrapbooking again after a week "off". As I said in my last post, my husband and I went to Washington D.C. for our one year anniversary. Rarely do I scrap pictures of recent events (like last week!) but after these layouts, I'm going to try it do some more often. It's fun to do almost a whole page of journaling because it's fresh in my mind.

I used the Sketch over at Let's Scrap because I could use lots of our zoo pictures. I used the DCWV Animal Crackers stack and chipboard embellishments.

Here is the first page. I love the toucan in the corner; I may go back and add the date on the green space. With 5 photos on the page, I wanted that to be the focus so I didn't add too many extras. The "at the zoo" uses glittery chipboard, I love it!

For the second page, I flipped the sketch on it's side and instead a photo and title, I did a whole 8 1/2 x 11 page of journaling. I like how the 4 circle embellishments mirror the buttons on the previous page. The photo corners at the bottom are also glittery chipboard.

Thanks for looking!

Scrapping the event so quickly after the event is a good idea! You're right, the journaling is so much more fresh. Great pages! It looks like you had fun!

So cute! I love how you used so many pics but it doesn't look crowded at all. Great job, my friend! :)
